Why We Love Our Volunteers!

Last Updated on Monday, April 29, 2013

Many words come to mind when describing a volunteer: devoted, inspiring, passionate. But those words feel pale and generic when faced with the deep motivation and strength that makes up the members of the Preeclampsia Foundation's volunteer core.

Volunteers come to our foundation for many different reasons: mourning the loss of a loved one. Mourning the loss of that "perfect" pregnancy experience. Celebrating their gratitude in having a new life. Honoring a loved one's experience which they can only hope to never personally understand. But they stay for one overwhelming reason. It is their desire that no woman and no family should feel as alone, insecure and frightened as one does when faced with an overwhelming health crisis like preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome or eclampsia. From improving prenatal education to engaging with health care providers to supporting families after their preeclampsia experience, our volunteers are a family who support impacted families through every step of the journey!

Last week many organizations celebrated National Volunteer Appreciation Week, but words are simply not sufficient to describe why we love our volunteers, because without them, this foundation would be nothing. We were started by "thoughtful, committed citizens," and we continue to push our mission forward through an ever-increasing number of those citizens.
